Do I have to pay a health care penalty to the IRS and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts?

If you did not have health insurance in 2018, you will have to pay a penalty at the federal level to the IRS and a penalty to Massachusetts. However, any penalty paid to the IRS will be allowed as a reduction of the Massachusetts health care penalty owed.
